Batley and Pugneys Sessions 23/24th September Cancelled

Just a quick note to say that the Friday night Batley session on the 23rd September has been cancelled, as well as the Saturday Pugneys session on 24th September, the closures are due to our annual slalom event over this weekend and most members being at the event helping to setup and run the event.

Again could we ask as many members as possible to come along to our event and lend a hand, the event takes a massive amount of organising as well as running over the weekend. Any little help will be appreciated, we need general help as well as competent on and off water safety cover and several bodies to help organise the paddlers at the start of the course to ensure we keep to the running schedule

If you have a few hours or a full day to spare PLEASE come along and help, there will be camping places available from Friday evening for any club members who are helping out but please let us know how you can help and when as well as if you require camping by contacting Mark  Wilbond HERE

Pugney’s 10th September

Unfortunately it looks like we will have to cancel the Pugneys session again this week  Saturday 10th August. This is due to the lake still being closed to ALL water sports users due to toxic algae growth.
We will look to have a river paddle on the Calder again instead.

If anybody is interested in joining us please email  me  HERE or send a message via Facebook.

On a more positive note Batley pool sessions will resume on Friday 9th September.

Pugneys 27th August

Hi All

Unfortunately it looks like we will have to cancel the Pugneys session again this week  Saturday 27th August. This is due to Pugneys closing the lake to ALL water sports users due to toxic algae growth.
We will look to have a bit of a river session instead if there is enough interest.

If anybody is interested in joining us please email  me  HERE or send a message via Facebook.

Sorry once again for this but it is out of our control, the lake is due to open again 2nd September so hopefully normal sessions will resume after this week.

Pugneys 20th August

Hi All

Unfortunately it looks like we will have to cancel the Pugneys session for Saturday 20th August. This is due to Pugneys closing the lake to ALL water sports users due to toxic algae growth.
A few of us are looking to go up to the Tees Barrage for a paddle if anyone is interested in joining us but please note this is for competent paddlers only at minimum 2 star standard and with a competent roll.

If anybody is interested in joining us please email  me  HERE or send a message via Facebook.

Hopefully if we get some rain and the lake clears during the week we should be back on the water again next week.
